Trey: European Redemption (Russian Mob Chronicles Book 7)Trey: European Redemption by Shandi Boyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trey: European Redemption (Russian Mob Chronicles Book 7) by Shandi Boyes was a great 5 star read. I love a good read and this story pulled me right in, the author pushes the boundaries on the topic and grittiness.

This is Trey and Kristina’s (Duchess) story. Trey works for Nikolai who we met in a previous book. Trey is very protective and when he meets Kristina he’s pulled right in by her. There was something about her eyes, something familiar. Kristina was forced into sex-trafficking the last six years and I would consider her a survivor. Trey also has some things from his past that have made him the man he is today.

Can these two put each other back together again?

Overall I really enjoyed this read. My emotions were all over the place, we get so much in one book. I really liked these two characters and the secondary characters added a great element to the story. I will warn that some things in this book may cause triggers for some. I look forward to reading more from this series and author. I love an author who isn’t afraid to give you dark, gritty and so much more.

One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge #1) by Nicole Flockton was a great 5 star read.

This is Kelly and Tate’s story,I was pulled right in by the authors writing and loved these two.
Tate has taken over the responsibility of his family’s peach farm and it is the site for this year’s Founder’s Day festival. He isn’t looking forward to working with Kelly who is the florist handling the flowers for the festival.

She isn’t thrilled about working with Tate either because of his playboy ways. But as they work together she starts to see a different side to him. They both have been hurt in the past so they each had some things to work through. You can feel the chemistry from these two coming off the pages.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. I really like how independent and strong both Kelly and Tate were. They were perfect for each other, I had some LOL moments when they would banter with each other. Of course we get some ups and downs and small town drama. If you’re looking for a great read I highly suggest this book. I look forward to reading more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

TWO HEARTS UNSPOKEN TARGETS (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 11)
by Tamara Ferguson was a great 5 star read.

I was once again pulled in by the authors writing and I didn’t want to put it down. Having military in the family I always enjoy reading the stories that these warriors face and I’m from Wisconsin so it’s an added bonus that the story is in Wisconsin.

Beth is a single mom with an autistic son, she recently lost her job due to a closure. When he’s offered placement into a vocational facility Beth accepts and makes plans to have a new beginning for both her and her son. Something about Dragonfly Pointe reminds Beth of her childhood.

Zach has recently taken a position at the wounded warrior facility. He is struggling with his injuries and is also having some emotional issues. He doesn’t feel like he is worthy of love because of his scars (which broke my heart).

Beth and her son Kyle end up meeting Zach on the beach. And it turns out that Zach ends up being Kyle’s teacher at the facility. I loved how great Zach was with Kyle, so sweet. The more time that Beth and Zach spend time with each other the chemistry grows.

Can these two have a HEA or will something from Zach’s past ruin it all?

Overall I really enjoyed this book. This was a great story with great characters. I look forward to reading more from this series and the author. If you’re looking for a great romance with suspense and so much more 1-click and get started today.

The Princess and The Pit Bulls (Fairy Tale Series book 4)The Princess and The Pit Bulls by Jody Lynn Daniels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Princess and The Pit Bulls (Fairy Tale Series book 4) by Jody Lynn Daniels was a good 4 star read.

This is a fairly quick read with a fun fairy tale theme to it. This is Sebastian and Chloe’s story.
Chloe is a designer from New York, she meets Sebastian when she is at her sister’s wedding.
Chloe has made some choices that have not worked out well for her and you feel for her and her situation.

Sebastian was great and I liked him instantly and his dogs. He and Chloe were perfect for each other. Chloe got along great with his dogs, when they normally don’t warm up to people, there was something special about her.

However, what will happen when someone tries to cause issues for them? Will the person succeed or will they get a HEA?

Overall I really enjoyed this book. The story line was good and I was pulled right in.
All the characters were great and I loved Bonnie and Clyde. I look forward to reading more from this author. If you’re looking for a great read I suggest this book. 1-click and get started today.
